Appalachian Trail (VA) - Rockfish Gap to Chester Gap (Segment 4) Professional Review and Guide

"Shenandoah National Park and the Appalachian Trail grew up together. Civilian Conservation Corps crews built Skyline Drive on right-of-ways carved by AT trail volunteers. The routes stay within a half mile of each other as they pass through mountain gaps, past old farms and orchards, and over rocky mountaintops.

Recent fires, ice-storm damage, and gypsy moth infestation have decimated large areas of the forest in Shenandoah. In these areas, the AT gives hikers a view of the shrubby plants, small trees, wildflowers, and vines that mark early stages of reforestation."
